Ride 24 - London to Paris

Event info
Sat 16/07/2016, 12:00

Blackheath, London. Up to 300 eager riders start out on a 24 hour journey they won't forget. An opening 90 mile dash to Dover - and the ferry won't wait. Darkness falls as we reach France; lights on, heads up, the pelotons speed through the night on wide, quiet roads. Fuelled by determination, stamina and much welcomed pit stops, dawn breaks. Legs are now weary but soon the morning haze lifts. Spirits rise as the French capital nears - at last that finish line is nearly in sight, though the ever present clock continues to quietly tick down…

Take on one of the truly great cycling challenges!

Sign up as a solo rider or as a relay team of 2. You'll be fully supported including mechanics, medics, support vehicles and bike transportaion. Be led by pace riders along the fully signed route with rest stops and food every 40 miles. Your package includes a hotel night in Paris, a celabratory dinner and a Eurostar back to London on the Monday, with free bike transfer. You'll also receive an official Scope cycling jersey.
